The CEO of Tesla wanted to discuss its sale to Apple and requested a meeting with the head of the latter, but as a result, the businessmen never spoke.
We have never spoken to Cook or written to each other. There was one moment when I asked to meet with Cook to discuss my company being bought by Apple. No requirements and conditions for the acquisition were established. He refused to meet with me. Tesla was then priced at 6% of the current price, Musk said.
So he commented on the publication of the book, which noted that Musk and Cook discussed a similar deal, but allegedly argued about the distribution of leadership positions.
Recall that at the end of last year, Musk wrote on his Twitter that he once offered Cook to buy Tesla “for one-tenth of its price today.” According to Musk, Cook then did not agree to meet.
